What is a light duty truck?
The United States federal regulations define light-duty trucks as trucks and vehicles that have a gross vehicle weight up to 8,500 pounds and payload capacities up to 4,000 pounds. These vehicles can include: vans, pickup trucks, minivans, and sport utility vehicles (SUV). The government set this vehicle classification for regulation of fuel economy. These vehicles are typically used for utility rather than personal use, so these vehicles have lower fuel economy standards.
Why should I get my light duty fleet regularly maintained?
Proper fleet management means making sure the vehicles in your light duty fleet are almost always road ready. Like every vehicle, light duty fleets also need regular repairs. Keeping and following a consistent maintenance schedule for your light duty fleet means your vehicles will have less downtime, because a regular maintenance service takes a lot less time than a large repair, and that your fleet drivers are more likely to have smooth rides every time. It is important to take a few vehicles in your fleet to the shop at the time as to not disrupt your fleet's flow. Our Quality at Downtown Automotive can help you keep a log of when each vehicle in your fleet was serviced last and when you need to bring the vehicle to our shop again. Your log should include each service that was performed on the vehicle, where the service was done and who serviced it.
We at Downtown Automotive highly recommend that fleet drivers perform a daily inspection on their vehicles to ensure that all its core parts are functioning properly. This process can be made more efficient with the help of a mobile inspection app in which fleet drivers can update the status of their vehicle, so the fleet manager can stay up to date on all the fleet's vehicles.
